DUKES OF TOPSAIL SOUND
Open ocean salt engulfs the nose and palate strongly as soon as the shell hits the lips then quickly sways the taste buds with incredibly sweet, almost scallop-like flavors.
Blue-green nutrient rich water from the Topsail Inlet runs over the lush spartina grass, sandy mud-mixed oyster beds and into Topsail Sound.
The vast pines of Holly Shelter Game Land and purity of the untouched Lea-Hutaff Island provide a healthy environment for the oysters to grow.
Extremely high 35ppt. The warm summer sun raises the temperature of tidal pools increasing the salinity leaving the oyster to pump this salty seawater.
We get it fresh!
At The Oyster Barn we collect our ingredients weekly. This means our menu may be subject to change depending out what the farmer's and fishermen are growing/catching. However, you can always expect a delicious and quality meal.
